ABSTRACT

The aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of this simple, solvent-free, one-step distillation-extraction method for the isolation of volatile metabolites from cultures of microscopic fungi applying a Deryng apparatus. For this study we tested liquid and solid-state cultures of filamentous fungi of Trichoderma viride, T. harzianum and Aspergillus niger and yeast fungi of Rhodotorula glutinis and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The volatile compound, 6-pentyl-alpha-pyrone, was isolated via steam distillation, applying the Deryng apparatus as the only volatile metabolite from liquid and solid cultures of tested fungal cultures in the range from 2,1 to 109,6 μg in 1 mL or 1 g fungal cultures.

Key words: fungal volatile metabolites, lactones, Deryng apparatus, filamentous fungi, yeast.
